Gamesa has announced a new order from Chinese utility Datang for the supply of 48 MW at Sanlengshan wind complex. The company has been contracted to install 24 G97-2.0 MW turbines.

The contract entered into with Datang contemplates the installation of 24 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Sanlengshan complex located in the Liaoning region in north-eastern China. According to Gamesa, the turbines are due for delivery by the end of the year, which is when the facility is also expected to be commissioned. 

The cooperation between Gamesa and Datang dates back to the year of 2005. Since then, Gamesa has signed more than 200 MW projects with this utility. Gamesa's presence in China, where it was the number one non-Chinese OEM by capacity instalments in 2015, dates back 16 years. In total, the company has supplied more than 4,000 MW in this market to date. This region accounted for 13 % of the company's total sales volumes (measured in MW) in 2015.
